A member of the Seattle Sounders' support staff has tested positive for the coronavirus, the team announced Sunday.
The Sounders said the individual resides in isolation protocol and that no other cases within the team have been identified.
Per the Sounders, the individual worked the team's match against the Columbus Crew on March 7 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle; however, the person in question did not have access to the general public.
"Over this current weekend, we were informed of a confirmed case of COVID-19 that directly impacted our club," Sounders FC general manager and president of soccer Garth Lagerwey said in a statement.
"In a situation like this, our aim is to provide as much information as possible in order to properly inform the public. We remain in constant communication with a number of regional and national health authorities, and based on the information we collectively have at this time, there is not felt to be a risk to any fans that attended our March 7 match at CenturyLink Field.
"The individual that tested positive for COVID-19 did not have access to the public on matchday, and fortunately we have no other confirmed cases within the club at this time. Alongside public health authorities, we are actively monitoring this situation, and should new details emerge, we will continue proactively communicating with our community."
